Sahouri Wins Settlement Against Argentine Township, Police Officer
Former Creekside principal will receive $150,000 settlement.
Former Creekside principal Tracey Sahouri has reached a settlement agreement with her lawsuit filed in January against Argentine Township and Officer Arch Ravert of the Argentine Police Department, according to court records from the Genesee County Circuit Court.
The Press and Argus reports that Sahouri will receive a $150,000 settlement, which she calls a "vindication," according to the story.
In July, 2011, Sahouri and her husband were ticketed for knowingly hosting a graduation party with underage drinking. The charges were dismissed in December with Sahouri filing a lawsuit shortly after claiming the charges were detrimental to her career and reputation.
Sahouri also has a lawsuit against Hartland Consolidated Schools claiming they violated the Whistleblower Protection Act. In April, the Hartland school board voted not to renew Sahouri's administrative contract, instead placing her as a teacher within the district.
Sahouri told the Press and Argus that the although the situation was "horrible" in Argentine, she feels that it was "10 times worse in Hartland schools."
